Uncovering Cicada Wiki

On April 29, 2017, a new user came to the #cicadasolvers IRC channel and notified us that he found a new PGP signed message from 3301 on Pastebin. The user searched "7A35090F" - 3301's PGP key - on the site, sorted by date, and found a previously undiscovered message from 3301. Currently, this is the most recent communication from 3301, coming over a year after their last message.

The message is a simple warning to stay on task and to check PGP. It demonstrates 3301 was still out there and looking for progress.
